It's finally finished!

My sweet Mama drove all the way from Wellington to bring us our newly-hemmed curtains this week. Why were they in Wellington getting hemmed? Because it was all of $20, that's why. And why didn't she just mail them, you ask? Because the postage would have been WAY more than $20 for those heavy, bulky curtains, completely defeating the purpose of sending them home with her in the first place. That, and she brought some plant cuttings from her yard to start in mine of honeysuckle and lilacs that have been in the family for a few generations now (how cool is that?). Oh, and she just HAD to see Drew Bear, too. But the REAL reason was the curtains.

So now the dining room is officially finished! Well, at least until we get the trim painted and the piano from Bubba's Mom. But that's not happening for a while, and are just bonus, so I'm sticking a fork in it anyway.

I like it way better, don't you? Don't you want to come over for dinner now?

Very nice! The new paint color really makes the room look more inviting, and the curtains add to that.

cjh, Crate and Barrel, dude. Both pieces were the same price as just the buffet we were looking at with PB. I'm very pleased with it, I feel like a grown-up now!
